Hello: The softener actually can increase the conductivity of the water, making the anode work harder, producing more gas and then odor. I might try bypassing the softener and adding hydrogen peroxide to the tank. Look in “tanklets” for details of how to do this. If that doesn’t work long term, replacing the anode with a powered version should do it.

Yours, Larry
